Alex G began posting videos of herself singing song covers in 2010, and her YouTube channel quickly became one of the fastest-growing on the massive site. As of September 2015, Alex’s page has over 194 million views and nearly 1.5 million subscribers, with an additional 590k followers across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
With her confidence growing, Alex began writing her own songs and released two successful EPs, Found (2012) and It’s You That I’ll Miss This Christmas (2013). Her well-received debut album, Growing Up, was released in 2014. It entered the iTunes Top 100 chart and reached #24 on the iTunes Pop chart.
Alex has grown from a fragile high school student, eager to please and perform, into an independent businesswoman who has taught herself how to record, film, edit, manage social media, and collaborate with other artists. However, it wasn’t until recently, when she began hanging out with people outside of her scene, that she realized the importance of being authentic and honest to herself and to her fans. In exploring her own story, Alex began to discover her voice. As she discovered the power of that voice, she discovered the power of giving a voice to others, to lending her voice to humanity, rather than to the pursuit of being an “unattainable superstar.” A voice is exactly what Alex gave to five of her fans on her new concept EP, Share Your Story, available to the masses on Friday, October 30.
The EP marks a massive shift in Alex’s personal journey and artistic presence in the industry. Each song on the EP is based on a fan’s personal story. Out of 1,300 submissions, five people have name-titled tracks on the EP: Charlotte, Muriel, Ben, Royston, and Alena.
